And we thought Dr. House was bad. On the November 7 episode of Fox's The Simpsons, House star Hugh Laurie voices a sinister character named Roger, a mysterious castaway who interrupts Marge and Homer's romantic second honeymoon cruise...
"We done with our tea and crumpets?" asked Gibbs (Mark Harmon), interrupting a cozy moment between his team and a British ally-or-adversary in "Royals and Loyals." This particular NCIS episode wasn't done at all, of course, exploiting every stereotype of Anglo-American differences. The false suspect of the week, Royal Marine Major Peter Molloy (Daniel Gillies), insulted our tea ("tastes like paper"), our beer ("horse excrement"), and our Gibbs (by comparing him to...
Debra Jo Rupp
After portraying maternal throwback Kitty Forman for eight seasons on Fox's That '70s Show, Debra Jo Rupp is thankful to go back to the present. In ABC's comedy Better With You — about a family dealing with the youngest daughter's pregnancy and quickie engagement — the actress plays a decidedly more modern mom.
"I think [being a] matriarch is in the stars now, given my age, but this is a different kind of role. Kitty was ever cheerful, but Vicky, not so much. And she has a nice hairdo," says Rupp.
When That '70s Show ended its run in 2006, Rupp took time off ...
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino
It's been a really rough week — a double whammy — for Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, the fourth star to be shown the door on Dancing With The Stars. Sorrentino stormed off the set Monday night after the judges called his Argentine Tango "a terrible mess," upset because they didn't appreciate the dangerous lifts he pulled off with his pro partner, Karina Smirnoff. But he was equally upset that his other hit show, MTV's Jersey Shore, featured him in an extremely unflattering light, slapping his cast mate, Snooki, after he asked her to leave a club, and she refused...
Cory Monteith, Lea Michele
For the second week in a row, the Tuesday night treat that was rapidly going from a hit to a "huh?" nailed it with an episode that had — wait for it — actual plot. No Britney numbers. No forced guest stars. No reasons to check out.
It's amazing how satisfying a show can be when the characters we invested in a year ago get to do something more than set-dress a stunt...
NBC's hit comedy 30 Rock will air two live episodes — one for the east coast, one for the west — this Thursday, and Tracy Morgan promises that the audience can expect the unexpected: "Somebody gonna get pregnant!" the star joked.
Tina Fey and company have been working tirelessly over the past week to convert Studio 8H in Rockefeller Plaza, currently home to late night staple Saturday Night Live, into the world of 30 Rock, including Jack's office, Tracy's dressing room...
Jeers to MTV and ABC for turning Teen Moms into Stars.

It's sad but true: There's no simpler route to celebrity these days than to be a kid who has a kid. Bristol Palin survived another week on Dancing With the Stars after trotting out her baby, Tripp, for an at-home segment — right before doing a sexy rumba with partner Mark Ballas in front of her beaming parents. (So much for advocating teen abstinence.)
Immediately afterwards, in the seemingly endless finale of MTV's top-rated Teen Mom, the quartet of titular baby mamas...
The doctors are in! Now that the fall TV season is underway and all of your favorite hot M.D.'s are back at work, we want to hear from you! From the Grey's Anatomy crew to that loveable but cantankerous Dr. House, let us know who you think is the hottest doctor on TV. Sound off in our poll after the jump...
SHE PLAYS Herself, a 26-year-old medical student from Durham, North Carolina, who lost her leg to a birth defect. Kelly came to Survivor: Nicaragua prepared with a specially designed artificial limb. "I don't think my leg is going to be a factor," she told TV Guide Magazine before filming began in June...
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Well, well, well. Isn't this what we've all been waiting for with baited breath?
First of all, no Beverly Hills babe would ever stoop to being called a housewife. How plebeian. How gauche. Hollywood wives please, far more glamorous! And I should know, since I wrote the book about the sleek, groomed, ambitious, social-climbing wives of Hollywood icons. But let's examine the women in question on this new Housewives franchise. They might be affluent, pretty (with a definite nod to various surgical procedures), but do they represent Beverly Hills? They sure give it a big try.
First off, there's Kim and Kyle Richards, sisters who were once child actresses and whose current claim to fame is that they are Paris Hilton's aunts...
